    Mostly I have worked with orphaned baby sea otters, though this experience did lead me eventually To Bleijdorp in Rotterdam Holland, where I was fortunate to work some with the veterinarians and as a keeper(Zebra post 4 )for a few months. I believe the world has become ONE HUGE ZOO, and that with collaborative efforts world wide we may be able to save some species from extinction. Greetings from Alaska, where wildlife still mostly THRIVE in the wild. Please help us keep it this way. Urban bears are being killed because dumb people leave their own garbage out. This is so sad.. but so very true in Anchorage these days…
